Artist's Description

Information on the Church as follows (wiki):
The Chapel of the Holy Cross is an iconic Catholic chapel built into the mesas of Sedona, Arizona, designed by architect and sculptor Marguerite Brunswig Staude, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, from the firm of Anshen & Allen. The chapel is built on Coconino National Forest land; the late Senator Barry Goldwater assisted Staude in obtaining a Special Use permit. The construction supervisor was Fred Courkos, who built the chapel in 18 months at a cost of US$300,000. The chapel was completed in 1956. 1

The American Institute of Architects gave the Chapel its Award of Honor in 1957. In the sculptor’s words, “Though Catholic in faith, as a work of art the Chapel has a universal appeal. Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men and be a living reality.”
